VPI would have these in stock, but if you want then quick, measure the diameter of the bearing and order on-line from Boca Bearing https://www.bocabearings.com/ or a similar company.

Replace those feet with BearPaws. (they are very large brass cones) You won't be sorry

Chances are that a part # does not exist as these are not regular maintenance/consumable items. VPI would typically only use one size for all their feet as to control inventory.
